Transmissions from the Love Room : WFMU Sessions 2008 – 2018

Created for the WFMU 2019 Fundraising Marathon
This album contains 12 examples of great live music performed at WFMU, transmitted from our Love Room over the last 10 years or so. Artists play live on WFMU all the time, and this collection could have featured an entirely different and equally wonderful track selection. In a perfect world, this would be a 5-LP set! But we winnowed it down to 12 favorites and pressed it up as a limited edition blue vinyl LP — a lasting format for what we feel is lasting music.
Cover Art by Yo La Tengo’s Georgia Hubley. Pressed on beautiful blue vinyl!
